St David's Day Summit

The Trek was fabulously well coordinated. I felt very prepared beforehand due to regular answers to my plethora of questions to the Team.
The trek itself was incredible, no vocab to describe, only pictures can do it justice. The stand on top of the world at sunrise, looking down / across at huge glaziers and volcanic craters was simply awesome.
A special note re guides, Simon and Felix, not only was their professionalism of the absolute highest standard so was their enthusiasm and encouragement. Their planning to allow me to achieve this incredible feat was brilliant, pace, knowledge, food, drinks, encouragement, tips etc etc. Superb.
I later squeezed in a short safari and a morning with the tribesman, completely different experiences but again organisationally great and experience superb. Coordinated by guides Karim and Gaspar, who again were 1st class with their knowledge and professionalism.

Highly recommend!!

My husband and I climbed with Team Kilimanjaro along with our two friends (another couple). We had amazing trip and were very happy with our choice of Team Kilimanjaro. Our lead guide, assistant guide, cook, and other crew members were excellent. They met all expectations for professionalism, efficiency, safety, and all other aspects. They even surprised us with wonderful small things like special snacks for the summit hike. Our guide (Ally) was particularly attentive to how each hiker was doing every step of the way. I was comforted to have him always asking if anyone had a headache or was feeling sick. He even held our arms and helped us to 'ski' down the mountain after summiting when some of us had trouble sliding on the steep dirt. I absolutely recommend Team Kilimanjaro to anyone looking for an unforgettable climb.

Supa Cheezy Team Kili

I can’t say enough good things about my climb with Team Kilimanjaro. From the start each communication with Bianca was prompt & helpful. The climb itself was gruelling and difficult, but our guides: Jacob and the Kelvinator never tired of reminding us to save strength and breath by pole pole pacing our steps. They also monitored us carefully to ensure that our symptoms of altitude were minor. From early morning coffee and hot wash water delivered to our tents, through every detail of our meals down to hot water bottles to keep our toes warm at night, Super Dulla (Abdullah) took care of our every need. As our spirits flagged on route to Uhuru Peak, Faraja and the crew literally sang us to the top!
As you can tell from the nicknames and insider slang language, not only did the disparate individuals who formed our group bond, but we also bonded with the Team Kilimanjaro crew. You guys are the absolute best. Thank you for the experience of a lifetime!

Lifetime Journey & 5 Stars

I highly recommend Team Kilimanjaro! Bianca was extremely helpful in booking my hike and safari.
Definitely 5 stars. My guides were INCREDIBLE. Thomas and Leo were outstanding with the rest of the staff that assisted me in my dream to summit. We were three solo travelers that are ever bonded from this experience.

I choose the Lemosho Route on a full moon. Thomas is an incredible guide and definitely enhanced my total Summit experience. His leadership skills are top notch. Thomas also respects and works as team with the whole crew. Our porters were selfless, professional and kind to me along my journey. Leo also was exceptional. These two men have influenced my life beyond words. I am truly grateful for having them to guide, support, inspire and cheer me on to the TOP!

Ps. I hired gear and it was good quality with no issues.

Highly recommended

My partner and I climbed Kilimanjaro with TK on the Lemosho route starting 26th December 2017. We successfully reached the summit on the 31st December 2017 at 6am to beautiful sunrise.
I was happy with the booking process and the communication prior to leaving and once on arrival we had a great team with us being led by chief guide Kefas, who was professional. encouraging and had safety and our needs as his number 1 priority.
I am vegetarian and this was accomodated without a probem and my partner and I were impressed with the food which was prepared on the mountain! The porters were amazing and friendly and the whole team really looked after us.
My friends and family at home loved the live tracking and seeing the pictures posted which put their minds at ease!
Only complaint- do not hire the sleeping bag!! it was wowefully inadequate and i spent every night freezing - take your own !
